Far cry from their WW2 & WW1 days. :lol:

Could you imagine if the U.S., U.K., China, etc. had a major blunder like this for a new major Defense Project?! ;o

The moment when there will be need for actual defense, German engineers will get up to speed. God help us then.

German engineers are still one of the best. It's always the managers and politicians with their miserable time and budget management skills. They arrange their projects way too cheap in order to get new contracts and/or approval of a parliament. They end up demanding more (tax)money. And on top of it: the results are trash. Look at the new Berlin airport "BER". Or the new Stuttgart trainstation "Stuttgart 21". Pure desasters.

If you mean militarily, yeah, maybe. I don't know tbh. I was talking in general. But that's why I said one of the best. Not the best. :wink:

My sister does. I'm from the south. Right between Stuttgart and Munich.

Meant Engineering. Dutch & Swiss are among the best Engineers in history. Nothing against Germany who are definitely been among the best (my aforementioned WW2 & WW1 references), but the marvels that have come out of Netherlands/Dutch/Swiss have been brilliant AF.

Especially of the Maritime Engineering variety. :D

I wouldn't want to live among Germans if they paid me to :lol:
Joking. I have to go to Berlin for a day next week, and need to find someone how to go from Schönefeld to the center, if I didn't want to use Taxi. Though it might be you, but seems not.
